Unfortunately, this leaves the keyboard mapping in a mess (for users of UK
keyboards at least). I see that xsrc/xc/config/cf/site.def contains:
#if defined(NetBSDArchitecture) && defined(arm32Architecture) /*
* This causes a problem with the X server, so I'm disabling it for now. -JJK
#define BuildXKB NO
I've built a fresh XF86_S3V with XKB enabled (and tuned for StrongARM) and
I've not seen any problems. Is this something that's been left in by
accident or should I expect something to go wrong soon? :-)
If anyone wants a copy of XF86_S3V.XKB to try, let me know.
